The research outlined investigates strategies that nonprogramming or "everyday" users may take in interaction with a Pervasive Computing Environment within relevant domains specified by them using a novel probe methodology developed with reference to theories of appropriation of technology and Vygotsky's "Tool and Result" methodology. A hypothesis of configuration policy styles is tested and types of everyday user styles and likely task domains are identified and discussed.
